On July 28, 2004, former president Gerald R. Ford sat down for an embargoed interview with The Washington Post's Bob Woodward. The interview was conducted at Ford's Beaver Creek, Colo., house; the former president agreed that his comments could be published any time after his death.

Ford says he does not believe the United States should intervene militarily overseas unless it is directly in America's national interests.
